Cupcakes is a charming and quirky comedy from Israel, directed by Eytan Fox and released in 2013. It tells the story of a group of friends who enter a song competition and end up becoming unlikely superstars. The film opens with a group of friends gathered in the apartment of Anat (played by Anat Waxman), a successful and stylish woman who works in the fashion industry. They all sit together and watch the Eurovision song contest on TV, an annual music competition that is hugely popular in Israel. After the show, they jokingly decide to write their own song and submit it for next year's contest.

Anat's friends include her best friend Ofer (Ofer Shechter), a flamboyant makeup artist, and Keren (Keren Berger), an aspiring singer who works as a kindergarten teacher. They are joined by Yael (Yael Bar-Zohar), a successful businesswoman who is going through a divorce, and Dana (Dana Ivgy), a political activist who has just been dumped by her girlfriend.

The group gets to work on their song, with each member contributing lyrics and melodies. They borrow Anat's friend's recording studio and record a demo, which they send to the Eurovision committee. To their surprise, they are chosen to represent Israel in the contest.

What follows is a hilarious and heartwarming journey as the group becomes overnight sensations. They travel to France to compete in the contest, wearing brightly colored costumes and performing their catchy song, "Anklets of Love." They make friends with the other contestants, including a young Swedish pop star and a flamboyant drag queen from Serbia. And they deal with the pressures of fame, as their song becomes a hit and they are constantly pursued by the paparazzi.

Along the way, the group faces bumps in the road. Dana struggles to come to terms with her recent breakup, while Yael grapples with the end of her marriage. And they face backlash from some conservative Israelis who are offended by their flamboyant costumes and message of love and acceptance.

But through it all, the group remains loyal to each other and their message of inclusion and friendship. They learn to embrace their individuality and to support each other through thick and thin. And they discover the power of music to bring people together and to uplift even the most downtrodden spirit.
